GPS FIRST and Intensive PBB Membership Drive

Let us not take anything for granted. We must work on the ground for the people who voted us in and as an assemblyman our constituents needs,wants are top priority and we are their voice.

How often have we heard those words from a YB?

N47 assemblyman who has endured injuries and battle scars from all State elections since 1980 is seen at his best working to win the constituency for his Party and the Coalition he represents in GPS. This is one seat which will be tested by the Pakatan Harapan (PH )to the fullest as its a Rural seat.

There was also ‘the survey” carried out and this quote extracted is nothing short of political notoriety,”Pakan is the poorest district in Malaysia, a national Chinese daily reported, quoting Rural and Regional Development Minister Rina Harun.” Mawan replied by saying,”please do compare notes with Pakan District Office to make sure the figure is correct.

The opposition front will nevertheless try to dislodge the GPS assemblyman and mark in their report for the upcoming PRN12 as a possibility to capture the seat. Of course they  will try to field their best candidate.

Is it from DAP or PKR as warring factions are already claiming the seat?

Let them be Mawan says as GPS comes first and he is doubling his efforts to further strengthen the ‘Support Base” and from reports on the ground he is practically working to win this seat for PBB and the ruling coalition.

He is afterall he says,”I am the assemblyman for Pakan and will continue to do so. The internet portal which quoted Mawan,” I still work as hard as i used to be.At the moment, i will just work until I am told to retire.” is politically correct to publish as if one was to read it in a bigger context until such time “one is unable or is permanently retired

aaama8Winning is a habit and Mawan subscribes to the principle and uses Sun Tzu-Art of War also to guide him eventhough he has been through many elections and won them since. Amongst his favourites which makes the coalition sees him as cool,calculated and dependable is this .“Know thy self, know thy enemy. A thousand battles, a thousand victories.”

“We are almost there and will not leave any stones unturned in preparation on the ground for Pakan to win the seat for GPS.

GPS comes First and we in PBB Pakan has gone on to intensify and attract more members to the party.

So far, we have recruited more than 1700 new members and together with the present registered members Pakan has around 3000 strong PBB presence. The total registered voters for Pakan based on 2016 electoral role is 10322.

We will invite the Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg who is also the Coalition Chairman of GPS and also PBB President to launch and receive the new members of PBB in the next couple of months.

Mawan battled hardened, exemplary track record and loyalty to the coalition is enough to signal to PBB that he is very much their man for N47 Pakan. The intensity and actions on membership drive and securing a PBB foothold on Pakan for GPS is his top priority.

GPS Winning the SEAT is IMPERATIVE says Mawan and the further increment in PBB membership for Pakan in the coming months will be a good indicator that PBB is well accepted by the constituents.

Mawan remains very focused on N47 Pakan and that’s very good news to the GPS Coalition. 

 

N47″Fully Entrenched in Pakan”

When an internet portal published at its site”Mawan working hard to strengthen his support base in Pakan” it captured the imagination of netizens especially so with a media savvy assemblyman who doesn’t mince his words and knows how the digital technology age revolves.

A wrongly worded or misconstrued political statement would in this day and age send any political personality spiralling down and damage control would naturally be the order of the day.

amawan88aThe assemblyman from Pakan was in touch through a telephone conversation and he further stressed the need of being on the ground, reaching out to the voters and also identifying them by MAN MARKING.
Its a football analogy but he has directed his officers, party members to start the headcount as GPS Priority is to win the seat.

Besides the football analogy he touched on some other key factors which obviously does come from Grinding and experience over the years as a man on the ground namely:-

  • 1.The Right way- Ingenious in varying tactics
  • 2.Heavenly Timeliness- Weather conditions
  • 3.Ground-Geographical conditions
  • 4.Command- Fearless , Strictness and Resolute in Political action.
  • 5.Institutions-Requirements and definations of duties.

This can all be found in the many theoretical and strategical books in the open market as they are Guidelines which must also in all fairest be noted.


He also mentioned that this PRN12 for GPS is not and will not be “A Walk in the Park” as the opposition PH will have the full armoury and assistance from their Federal Counterparts.


A  Veteran PBB member who have at least 8 state elections under his belt even agreed with Mawan on that count.

Let me add this he said,”GPS is a new brand and like a new brand it needs to be marketed at all the 82 constituencies to touch ground. BN in which the 4 parties left to start a Sarawak local based party is still very Fresh with the Bumiputera and in the Interior.

The GPS Commander being the Leader and Chief Minister must go down to each and everyone of the 82 seats Individually and to make sure its a combined effort.

Let us just touch on an example Pending seat which is under the opposition DAP . The commander in chief with the President of the Party in SUPP (they held this seat before) should meet up only the 4 Division Chiefs in PBB,SUPP, PRS and PDP together with their members of youth wanita and executive committee.

If it happens to be Pending seat the SUPP Candidate if already identified meets them in a closed door meeting for the Pending kawasan. This is one way the whole machinery will be motivated to fight to win back the seat from the opposition.

He was also very blunt by saying,” many following CM rombongon just to be seen as politically relevant atau ” ngegeh ngegeh’.

Moreover he said being new in the market GPS must not hold back on resources and use every ounce of their manpower to fight the opposition.

Sik boleh”LOKEK”

The senior member further reiterated that ,” you see this is the sad truth and enough of the get together  and combination of many constituencies just to bring in the crowd. Now we have to BRAND GPS in the mindset of those who will vote for us and not just to make our members FEEL GOOD. The constituents are the ones who determine who wins each individual 82 seats.

Hopefuly, my small little advice is taken in good faith and the leaders do follow it through.

GPS is facing the NEW BRAND SYNDROME which was also echoed by the PBB Bukit Kota assemblyman Dr.Abdul Rahman Ismail who is also an Assistant Minister of Agriculture made a rallying cry to GPS to intensify its ground level support.

The statement,From now on, all GPS party members have an important task which is to let people throughout the state know about our logo, especially at branch and sub-branch level.

It is because we will use the GPS logo during the coming 12th state election and not contesting under BN ticket because we have already left the BN coalition.

GPS as a true son of Sarawak has the responsibility to safeguard the state’s racial unity and religious harmony as well as to fight for the interest of the state and its people.

All taken in the stride GPS as a local based coalition party will still be in for a tough and brusing battle come PRN12 says Mawan and also agreed with his PBB colleague on the above statement.

We must be open to all suggestions if it is to win the seats and form the RULING STATE GOVERNMENT after PRN12.

Mawan asked us to check out his book “Reflections- a journey of hope,aspiration and perseverance” which was published in late 2016.

In our telephone conversation Mawan said that  internet portal did touch on the subject of retirement on which he coolly replied ,’ I still work as hard as i used to be.At the moment,i will just work until I am told to retire.”

As the State Legislative Assembly Speaker Datuk Amar Mohammed Asfia Awang Nasser said in the Reflections book,”Mawan is a “cool cat’ and one who is able to make wide decisions unclouded by emotions even under the most stressful of situations.

Retire, is very far away from Mawan’s political vocabulary and as one may notice and true to his words his programmes are full every weekend and he is seen criss crossing the Pakan constituency informing the people that he is a PBB Member which is part of a local coalition in GPS .

His weekends are very much with the people of Pakan who he has served for the last 6 terms since 1991. The people would want him to represent them come PRN12 and judging from all ground activities which he has carried out he would not be short of Support from his constituents.

Mawan ended the telephone conversation with these words which are excerpts from the book ,”our strength as a Coalition are sustainability which is built on unity and cooperation that cut across social and cultural divide.

GPS he says the stand remains the priority to win the seats in which they contest. Individual interest of component parties is secondary.We cannot afford to learn another LESSON.

There is no Winnabilty without loyalty and for that he is very much ENTRENCHED IN Pakan N47.

Cakap Besar Macam “Tin Kosong!!”

Blah! Blah! Blah..! He has not stop yapping away unnecessarily ever since before GE14.

As far as we know his “too demure character..oops being sarcastic here ” it does seem that it will not be anytime soon that he is going to “lip it up” or in other words “shut-up” even though now he is part of Malaysia’s Cabinet under  Prime Minister Tun Mahathir .

In PRU 14 the 5% swing votes in the Malay hinterland and the 1MDB Saga was too humongous an issue to cover which eventually saw to the downfall of the former ruling BN Government. Of course there was some other “bombastic promises” added and included in the Manifesto which the middle income earners were somewhat mesmerized too and also played a significant part in them voting for Pakatan Harapan legislators.

However,time is ticking by and PH is in office for well over a year and what has been promised laden with “the sweetest honey” is still very much kept “locked and stocked” in the cupboard. Is this affecting the PH Sarawak Chairman ? Has PH Sarawak lost its direction?

The PH Chairman has boldly predicted in October 2018  he believes “75 per cent of Sarawakians want a change in the state government in the next state election, which is due in 2021

Then recently on June 25th 2019 nearly a year later  he said this ,”Unlike the elections before this, the election this time will be fair because we think that PH can win the next state election. There is no need for us to manipulate all the machineries in our favour.”

He is BOLDLY PREDICTING even after his Malayan Chieftain in Federal FINANCE MINISTER has politically declared Sarawak will be “BANKRUPT” after 3 years in a political dinner “Sarawak here we come”

Is this a FEAR PROPAGANDA OR A SIEGE MENTALITY STATEMENT?

Wow! Bricks, Bottles, Tins, Plastics and even Rotten Eggs and virtually anything that anyone can get their hands on WOULD BE thrown at his Political Master if he dares to UTTER THOSE WORDS again in SARAWAK.

To be honest, we are not been bias but he has openly been criticised left,right,centre,top and bottom by most sectors who felt their SARAWAK PRIDE has been tarnished. We are not Greece or Kelantan for that matter and majority are fueling their anger towards an irresponsible statement by a Finance Minister.

There is a time and a place to propagate but using FEAR PROPAGANDA without facts is very detrimental to the Sarawak economy says a local entrepreneur.

Very much in tandem with his master the PH Sarawak Chairman added some more spices to an already HOT ISSUE.

“DONT BE OVERLY EMOTIONAL” which irked many and by now the fence sitters who voted for PR in 2016 and PH 2018 are convinced that their VOTES have been wasted.
What has happened to the Sarawakian Spirit of protecting our own turf?
Has absolute power put a Wool over this new deputy minister’s eyes says a women voter?

achong1Their “so called fanatical” supporters will still raise their flags, hands up high and shouting at the top of their lungs but will that be enough we ask?

A senior politician has this to say about this young upstart.
“He says a lot of things LOUD plus NOISY, here and there and all the TIME.
It doesn’t mean he knows Everything what he says.
There is a lot of things he says he DOES not know enough”

To put matters worse Sarawakians have not forgotten what he said prior to GE14.

All that is being spewed out by the PAKATAN HARAPAN Chairman at the moment are pure rhetoric’s or one would say, trying to stay RELEVANT. These words which is still fresh in the Minds of Sarawakians who voted for PH during GE14 as it was replayed many times by their propaganda election war machine.

The graphics below courtesy of  the designer are a true indicator of what was delivered in the DUN prior to GE14 and moreover there was evena live feed and recorded.

  • 50 % of all tax revenue collected from Sarawak will go to State Coffer
  • 20% Oil and Gas Royalty will go to State Coffer
  • 100,000 Jobs for Sarawak Unemployed Youths

achong2.jpgIn the video recorded he was so sure and said,”You don’t need to beg….
Who is begging now? Of course the PH and DAP Chairman.

By the way Sarawakians are not suffering from DEMENTIA or as the IRANIAN President Hassan Rouhani bluntly put it ,”The White House is afflicted by MENTAL RETARDATION and does not know what to do.” 

Over 1 year has passed and patience are running thin on the ground and Sarawakians being nice would have this to say which would be more appropriate,” You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. 

Maybe the PH Chairman needs to be reminded by our late and good friend in the 16th President of United States in Abraham Lincoln .

We are not here to guide him on how to be a Minister Material but more so to tell him don’t sell your soul away to the Malayan Masters without even putting up a fight.
Rightly or Wrongly a FB page even put up a caricature and had the words “Keldai Malaya” which am sure his “fanatical supporters” would brush aside or even consider using MCMC to check it up.

BN Leaders were subjected to worse name callings and even a video of Rafizi Ramli PKR Vice President had him saying  their job is to “Penghasut”

The point now is that the PH Chairman of Sarawak must know where and what he represents as he is a part of the MALAYSIAN Cabinet.

Does he not even heed the Council of Elders Tun Daim Zainuddin words to watch his words when he opens his mouth? Tun Daim on the 29th of May 2019 said “that ministers should avoid making knee-jerk statements.”

Sarawakians are quietly ashamed that this young upstart needs to go for further grooming and for that reason Tun Mahathir might in his wisdom be correct to put Baru Bian as a Full Minister and Chong as Deputy Minister. 

Correct me if am wrong but his Malaya DAP Chieftain couldn’t assist him for a Full Minister’s Post in Tun M Cabinet. 

Maybe PM Tun M knows that too many Tin Kosong would be bad for his Cabinet.

 

 

Political Careers Ruined by Sex Drives!!

Many budding politicians around the world have fallen victim to their sex drives , overzealous urged and uncontrollable behaviours. Sex Scandals can momentarily derail or halt a ‘shinning star’ or someone’s”blue eyed” politician.

We all know that there are indeed many ways to carry out this sting to bring shame and destroy the credibility of a capable politician. In the last couple of days a sensational sex scandal has emerged at the doorstep of Malaysian Politics.

This involves Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz a senior private secretary to Primary Industries Deputy Minister Shamsul Iskandar Md Akin ‘confession” on a video clip seen together with supposedly the Malaysian Economic Affairs Minister Azmin Ali.

audie111Oh Wow! Isn’t this a bit too daring or has the person in question being broken in “love” that he will forgo whatever to bring out the truth. That remains to be seen and we know what the laws of Malaysia are.

Sodomy is illegal in Malaysia.The sodomy laws are enforced using Section 377 of the Penal Code which prohibit carnal intercourse against the order of nature.

Any person who has sexual connection with another person by the introduction of the penis into the anus or mouth of the other person is said to commit carnal intercourse against the order of nature.

It is up to the authorities concerned to take the necessary action as the STORM has  already caused much damaged.

There are various opinions, arguments,political conspiracies which nonetheless cannot be ignored and to stop this gutter politics the “culprits ” or “story tellers” needs to be found. There are many directors and producers in this episode and to have them excepted from wrong doing is not the order of the day for “A NEW MALAYSIA” 

There will be many more spillages and new evidence of being thrown out for public consumption and this will do no good for the 1 Year old Government which has seen many U-Turns and now this Sex Video Scandal.

The Malaysian Public will be glued to their hand phones for the next 48 hours to receive more information as they always say,”Sex Sells” and this saga has engulfed many to have sleepless nights and getting notifications from their phones at the most weirdest of hours.

There will be debates and press statements from many politicians aligned to the accuser and victim but the authorities needs to act quickly. 

Let’s see how this story goes and whether it will be an END GAME for some.

 

Sarawak PRN12,”Names Thrown into the Bag”

What….! Ridiculous and Making Joke of the Situation.

He was absolutely fuming mad and shocked. Why have they got my name included and circulated in the whats-app group, telegram,Facebook and in social media platforms.

Furthermore its even been picked up by an internet portal and speculated to an extend where messages and phone calls are being received to congratulate the person whose name has appeared in the so called “FABRICATED LIST

There was indeed an original list and the one that appeared in the portal was a watered down version not to anger some so it seems. 

anames        Is everyone happy that their name is on the list?

For goodness sake, the former supreme council member of a component party in question was not at all pleased and he even said that the list will further divide the community which took years to bring and build up together the solidarity and unity. 

He even went further and said why the author had to single out the “Bidayuhs’ even and it could be taken as he does have an ulterior motive or by design to help the ‘opposition’ and derail the present GPS Government.

One win he said about the PKR MP Willie Mongin does not necessarily mean the State opposition parties can make inroads into the Bidayuh Hinterland during PRN12. There are always many names thrown into the bag but how many will come out of their ‘comfort zone” and stand to be elected as an assemblyman.

The PH Member of Parliament won in Puncak Borneo due to the wrong candidate being presented ,also the infighting and dropping of some former MPS by a component party. That’s the past and its history for GE14 and for Willie he wished him well.

Are the Bidayuh seats of GPS really up for Grabs or in trouble as we head into PRN12?

The Bidayuh seats are in the semi urban areas and are very accessible to the social media platform and any last minute “HIGHLY VOLATILE ELECTION PROPAGANDA” would overturn any ‘sure win seat’

The concerns are there for the GPS ruling government as PH has also the resources from their Federal counterparts to match them. It would be down to the VOTERS in the constituency and also “influencers or cyborgs” who will play a very BIG DEFINING ROLE.

It will not be an election which will be “A WALK IN THE PARK” for the ruling GPS Coalition as they are on their own now. Previously, they have the backing of a large coalition 13 member team but now its only down to 4. 

Do we need to write further?

Am sure he said next there will be a big list for the Iban and also the Malay-Melanau areas being circulated. The Chinese areas would be highly charged as always as DAP would provide the most stern test for the ruling SUPP/GPS  and PSB Ybs. 

Wouldn’t it be interesting to write he said to the audie61 team and question whether Sarawak PH would be using the PH Coalition or individually using DAP,PKR,Amanah and Bersatu logos.

They after all have mentioned that they PH Sarawak have AUTONOMY of their own and are not influenced by Federal.

We shall see wouldn’t we when the time comes. For now, he said he is still very upset and bitter but unlike some who are happy to have their names thrown in.

Let them enjoy the moment was his parting sentence

 

Sarawak PRN12 ‘The Battle is on. Battle Royale and Massive Spoilers!!”

Kalau bukan kamek siapa gik? (if not us,who else)

The normal layman on the street and voter is so used to hearing those words come the,”season of election.”
PRN12 in Sarawak will not be short of excitement,slandering, frustrations,festivities all around the 82 seats on offer. The Voters will be the key to Petrajaya.

gps1The reality of course is Pakatan Harapan after wrestling the Federal government will be hoping that their Sarawak counterparts (pretenders to the throne of ruling Sarawak) can capitalise on the newfound power to take on Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) the ruling State Government. 

Going with the flow is of course Parti Sarawak Bersatu ( PSB) who will be massive Spoilers and other Sarawak local based Parties Parti Bangsa Dayak Sarawak Baru (PBDSB) Sarawak Workers Party (SWP) Sarawak Reform Party (STAR) Party Bumi Kenyalang (PBK).

We were made to understand  and have the list too with us that PSB (massive spoilers) has a list of 36 seats which they are targeting in place and from intelligence sources they are not far behind in finances as they are being financed by a huge conglomerate to the tune of millions.

Thus,It’s of no wonder that PSB is on a recruitment and expansion drive into the rural areas for the party to stay relevant  It does look like they are going into SUPP,PRS and PDP areas only and not intruding into PBB areas..

What actually is the political statement and intent here?

According to a political analyst these parties will be a threat if they decide to pull their resources together and combine into another Sarawak Coalition under Sarawak Baru. They all have their strengths too and they need to look at themselves as the dynamics have indeed changed.

History was created in May 2018 and the facts and statistics are there for all political strategists to compare and learn from where their mistakes were or for their winning efforts 

Lesson from GE14 where a 5% swing in the Malay Hinterland Areas in Peninsular Malaysia saw the Ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) Government losing power to the Opposition Pakatan Harapan Government for the first time.

The BN Safe areas votes where BN faced PH and PAS saw PAS taking a substantial chunk of the votes and deprived BN of the winning seat. Its a tough lesson and am sure BN knows that the new coalition of alliances which includes PAS is very relevant in the Malay heartland.

Its been proven though in the 3 by-elections but will the Majority of Malay Voters buy into this Partnership or New Ally for GE15?

We will not know till after GE15 so might as well we turn our attention to something more familiar and HOME Based which is PRN12. 

The crew and writers of audie61 have travelled extensively and experienced many State elections going back as far as to the ‘infamous MING COURT AFFAIR of 1987’.
When PRN12 is eventually called it could be 33 or 34  years since that episode.

Many of the younger politicians who started their Political careers have battle scars, battle grudges and are battle hardened. They will still be there in PRN12 and they will have a say or two.
Of course PH Candidates  will definitely use a slogan …lets put some creative words in their mouth..,”If not now when again. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

Didn’t DAP use the POKEMON GO advertisement to their advantage then? Heard they are using the Marvel Studio and Avengers symbol for Sandakan? Is this true? Hope not, as they might be in for a serious breach of patent.

We know fairly well that Just about anything that catches the eye of the voter is being used to draw the voter to mark the election slips.

A too familiar war cry which will entice and ensure their candidates are on the winning side is all political propaganda and their strategists needs to know the real feel and touch point on the ground zero.

The propaganda team can create the most outstanding video,caricature,e-poster various free gifts to symbolise the coalition but ULTIMATELY the candidate is the most important factor the voters to choose.

The fact remains now and the voters and political analyst knows that the political climate in Sarawak has indeed gone up a few decibels.

PBB being the strongest party with 46 ADUNS heads the new SARAWAK Coalition of GPS with PRS 11,SUPP 7,PDP 4.

GPS left the BN Coalition for the greater good of Sarawak and most obviously to put a foot into the body of opposition in Pakatan Harapan Sarawak (PH) 
PH is made up of Peninsular based parties and the assemblyman that represents them are no doubt Sarawakians but they still have to toe the line in the party hierarchy and answerable to them.
It’s a win/lose situation for them come PRN12 as the SARAWAK SENTIMENTS are extremely high with all the numerous U-TURNS by PH on SARAWAK affairs which gives more than an edge to Sarawak based parties in GPS and to a certain extent in PSB or to Sarawak Baru parties.

It’s harsh to say that the chips are down for PH Sarawak as unfulfilled promises are not addressed from economy, fuel prices, new taxes and cost of living. They cannot used their own too familiar rhetoric and stage showed ceramahs to hook-winked the urban areas.

The rural areas the GPS government will still be attacked by the opposition in PH prioritising on NCR and Crony Companies involved. The local based parties will use their own personal influences that they are better in representing them in the constituency rather than the incumbent GPS assemblyman/woman.

The option is there to attract the  voters and they will know who is more than capable to represent them in Petrajaya. This is not a sweeping statement and the right strategy and the reality of deliverance of the Incumbents will ensure they are safe.

If not, they will simply be shown the door and this is the fairest statement from a constituent. Forget the ceremonial hoo-haas as Sarawak is on a threshold of something new and new leaders will appear and be elected but the veteran and experience will also have their say on the future of Sarawak.

The jigsaw to wrestle control for the State from PH Point of view looks complicated or does it? There are many issues,factors and so much political work still to be done.

It’s not all gloom or doom for all the political players in PRN12. According to a senior politician he puts it down to strategy and how each coalition uses the right method of deliverance to ensure the votes stays or goes to their candidate.

It’s so different and not the same for GPS now as their Wings have been clipped without Federal Intelligence and Agencies on their side. PH will have over 30 or more agencies with them. PH will need to know how to use this to their advantage and word has it that they are looking at denying 2/3rds Majority for the ruling GPS .

Of course, this must not be complacency on GPS side and they need to up their ante and put up a formidable fort and  protect what is theirs. It’s going to be tough and we know that the political situation have changed.

However, it does get rather interesting with PSB ( Parti Sarawak Bersatu) not in any of the coalition.

Are they playing spoilers or could they be doing it for their own Survival? The talking point is obvious and for the Chief Minister to subtly put it that there are “TERMITES” in their midst and the fact is that’s looking at it POSITIVELY with PH also a real termite biting away.

Coming to CM’s defence is that he knows that the threat is real as he will be leading the TEAM GPS for the first time as Commander in Chief. He will need his Generals and lieutenants to be on top of their Political game to fend off all the advances from all angles.

The Sarawak Sentiments is very strong and how long will it last will be up to the parties to capitalise. The Battle is On and given all the considerations and concerns GPS will still have the upper hand but they must not let their guard down.

In Politics anything is possible and the Strategists for all the parties will need to be on top of their game and that might be it.

Nothing is bizarre when it comes to the Voters who will have the final say in the ballot boxes for PRN12.

The 1.2 Million voters throughout the 82 seats will determine the Government of the day.

Be Warned ……
